The Sarasota Ballet is the Gulf Coast of Florida’s first and only professional ballet company. Under the Direction of Iain Webb, the Sarasota Ballet has expanded its repertoire to include works by world renowned choreographers such as Sir Frederick Ashton, Dame Ninette de Valois, Antony Tudor, Sir Kenneth MacMillan, Robert North, John Cranko, Hans van Manen, Andre Prokovsky, Matthew Bourne and Dominic Walsh. Recently, dance and theatre critic for the New York Times Alastair Macaulay noted “...the Sarasota Ballet (in its 18th year, and directed since 2007 by Iain Webb) has suddenly become America’s foremost exponent of Ashton ballets.

The Sarasota Ballet is a top notch company, performing cutting edge works in the classical ballet genre, like Balanchine, DeValois, Ashton and the rising choreographer, who is also one of the company's dancers, Graziano. Everyone is really professional. I doubt you could find a better ballet company anywhere.
